Vale: Major General B.W. ‘Hori’ Howard AO MC ESM 

The Royal Australian Regiment is both shocked and saddened by the sudden loss of one of our Tribal Elders. Hori died in Canberra this morning

Notice of Hori’s death from his son Mick on facebook: “After a very challenging couple of months Dad passed away earlier today. One of a kind and a tough bastard. Memorial details to follow.”

Our deepest sympathty and condolences are with his son Mick, his Family and the wider Howard Family

Rest in Peace Hori your Duty has been done.

A Warrior’s Farewell – Homeward Bound

For our Mates

I saw the shooting star burning so bright.
Falling, falling, fading and soon from sight.
So distant and yet so near,
In its wake, a soldier’s journey so very clear,

Duty, sharing, caring, courage and sometimes fear.

No longer a mortal in life’s short race,
A contented spirit bound for home somewhere in distant space.
This fiery trail I saw tonight marks a warrior’s farewell,
Leaving behind another legacy of proud deeds to tell.
